CEMENT FONDU is a hydraulic binder with an alumina
content of approximately 40%.
Composed mainly of the calcium aluminate phase,
CEMENT FONDU is ideally suited for refractory
CEMENT FONDU also contains secondary mineralogical
phases containing combinations of CaO, Al2O3, iron oxide
The high proportion of mono calcium aluminate
(CaOēAl2O3) in CEMENT FONDU imparts excellent
mechanical strength to refractory mortars and concretes.
Despite the approximately 16 % iron oxide content of
CEMENT FONDU it is suitable for refractory applications
where iron oxide can be tolerated. However, its use
cannot be recommended for reducing atmospheres. The
rheological properties of CEMENT FONDU are well
adapted to all types of placing methods, particularly for
casting and gunning.
It is recommended for applications requiring rapid hardening
properties, resistance to abrasion and mechanical shock,
and exposure to intermediate temperatures.
